Objecting to planning

If you object to a planning permission notice for a house to be built do you have to give a reason and does the person you’re objecting to know who did it ie can you do it anonymously

Observations are a matter of public record and published by the local authority. Your observations should include concerns and/or praises of the application

Not only do you have to give a reason (unless you want your observation tossed in the bin), but that reason has to be grounded in planning law. If you have a serious enough objection then you ought employ someone conversant in constructing your observation on your behalf. If you can get a number of people on board who have a similar objection you can object using the same expert and divide the costs.

Yes, your objection will be on the public file, on the public website and you'll have to pay €20.

Your name and address will need to be attached to the object which is published also.

The house is being built right across from our house on a narrow road they’ll basically be able to look straight into our living room and bedroom and I’m not comfortable with that. Awkward objecting because it’s a neighbours family building it.
Thanks for all the replies

What’s more awkward sending in an objection or having some one look in your window for ever?

At least you'll be able to stare right back at them!

I'm not sure that's grounds for a valid objection, maybe if they were next door and had a window overlooking you or something, but they're across a public road, where anyone can stare at you right now if they so wish.

It will only be for about a year, we’re renting and will be starting to build a bit further up the road at the start of 2020 all being well. So I think I’ll have to weigh it up. Thanks

Objecting to someone building across the road from the house you are renting only sort term seems pretty to me.

You are going to start building in the next few months yourself, I'd not bother with it.Nothing to gain really but annimosity .

If you think it would be awkward to object imagine if you did and were successful. You then move somewhere else a year later. If I was the person you'd objected against I'd be well pissed.

Do you have planning permission for the house you will build soon?
If not then if u object to the neighbors house then you can be full sure that they will object to any application you make in the future.

They might also object to want extension or other alteration you might want to do in future.

My sister had this with a contrary neighbor. Objection was made to his application. Permission was given anyway. then as revenge for having the nerve to object an environmental complaint was made to the council over my sister's plane. Then sister made a countercomplaint over something he was at in his back yard. A hedge was cut down out of spite.
Now they wouldn't give each other the time of day if their lives depended on it.

I understand this, my main worry is this person is unbelievably nosy, I don’t think we’d be bothered if it was anyone else.
But I think I’ll just let it go and concentrate on our own house. I’ll just keep the blinds closed!
Thanks everyone who replied much appreciated
